Breaking News: Napa Earthquake; Lodge Lightning Complex Fire

Napa earthquake (Updated at 8:50am Wednesday August 27): According to the USGS, an earthquake and several aftershocks were recorded Sunday morning. The original quake at 3:20am Sunday morning was measured at 6.0 and was centered near American Canyon. Three aftershocks were recorded near Napa: at 5:01am (2.5), at 5:47am (3.6), and 7:22am (2.5); two more near American Canyon at 7:54am (2.8), and 10:38am (2.6).  Additional aftershocks were reported by USGS in the area on Tuesday, including a 3.9 shake at 5:33am. Sunday's quake was the strongest in the Bay Area since the 6.9 Loma Prieta quake (October 17, 1989).

KQED reports the following information:
• Napa’s Queen of the Valley Hospital reports treating 209 people between the time the earthquake struck at 3:20 a.m. and 11 p.m. Sunday. The hospital says a total of 17 people were admitted, most in fair to serious condition. One person remains in critical condition. Vallejo is reporting 49 minor injuries.
• Napa officials say the list of badly damaged buildings in the city has grown dramatically as inspectors continue the long, slow process of assessing structures in the wake of Sunday’s earthquake. The city said at a Tuesday afternoon press conference that it expects to have red-tagged 120 structures by the end of the day. That means they’re unsafe to enter pending further assessment or repairs. Another 500 have been yellow-tagged, meaning that while premises may be entered, they’re unfit for occupancy. 
• The Napa Fire Department reported Monday it responded to 50 fires after the quake, including one in a mobile home park that destroyed four units and damaged several others. Fire officials said an initial lack of water due to water-main breaks led to some of the destruction.
Additional detailed information can be found at KQED's website: KQED reports.

The Napa Valley Register reports that "after two days of earthquake cleanup and inspection, public schools in Napa, American Canyon and Yountville will reopen on Wednesday."
Additional detailed information can be found at The Napa Valley Register's website.

Lodge Fire: Crews continue to monitor and work hot spots and lingering fires within the perimeter of the Lodge Fire site. At last report the fire had consumed 12,535 acres and was 96% contained. Some smoke can be detected in the Leggett Laytonville, Ukiah and adjacent areas.
